There’s opportunity in disruption

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

2020 has upended the global economy and the world of investing. The pandemic brought a decade-long US bull market to an end and sparked extreme market volatility. More than ever, the investment community needs to address the large-scale social and economic consequences of the pandemic and its economic fallout. Today’s buy-side leaders are rethinking the future of capital, their responsibilities to shareholders and new investing approaches centered on making 2021 a reset for the better -- towards a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable economy. The pandemic has also illustrated that there are real opportunities to accelerating innovation and harnessing the power of technology.

The IMAS-Bloomberg Investment Conference 2021 will convene the most influential investors and thought leaders who will share new ideas on the future of capital and spotlight emerging innovations that will fundamentally change the asset management industry.
The Future of Capital: In Conversation with Lim Chow Kiat
GIC’s mandate is to protect and enhance the long-term value of the reserves under its management.  In this increasingly complex and rapidly changing environment, how does GIC position its portfolio and sustain value creation?  What are the key trends that will impact the future of capital as investors rethink return, risk and strategy?
Coming of Age of China’s Capital Market
Foreign holdings of Chinese bonds hit another new record in October 2020, pushing the total amount of bonds held by foreigners above 3 trillion yuan for the first time ever. In a low interest rate environment, global investors are seeking superior alpha and the China capital market has become a bright spot. What remains some of the greatest risks and challenges in investing in China's capital market and how can defaults be addressed? Is the China bond market at a tipping point?
The Decade of Impact on Asia's ESG Playbook
Socially conscious investing has gained momentum in 2020 as COVID-19 has sparked interest in stakeholder capitalism. Investors are calling it the 21st century’s first “sustainability” crisis that has renewed the focus on climate change, and a more sustainable approach to investment. The ESG market is expected to reach $45 trillion in AUM in 2020 and over the past year, assets in ESG ETFs have more than doubled to $80 billion. But are we seeing sufficient traction in Asia? Join Mark Konyn, Fiona Reynolds and Chong Jiun Yeh as they assess how COVID-19 is affecting investor thinking about ESG, what the challenges of implementation are in Europe versus Asia, and what the Asia ESG investing playbook may look like.
